Video: 1929 Reasons to Plant a Victory Garden

Dear brothers and sisters,

The growth of  debt in the United States is incredible. The federal government now owes $27 trillion that it can’t pay. Up from 2.2 trillion 40 years ago.

 The country as a whole, including the private sector, owes $83.7 trillion… that it can’t pay.

Prices have started to rise as a result of the increased money supply -just look at the prices of organic fruits and vegetables.                     Inevitably, interest rates  will skyrocket to reflect the depreciation of the currency.This will pop the housing bubble.

The response will be one and the same:-

Print more money.

Tragically enough the unemployment rate is 7.9%.   Millions of renters are behind on their payments.

A chain reaction of bankruptcies is in the offing.

It seems to us, brothers and sisters, that growing our own food is no longer an option.It is a necessity. Every backyard, a Victory Garden, every front yard, an heirloom apple orchard, every vacant lot, a community garden. Every school, an edible schoolyard.

In your kitchen, right now, start that tray of wheat grass , that tray of arugula, that tray of broccoli sprouts.

Plant a Victory Garden by way of proclaiming that come what, may you will see us through and  build here a garden for the American spirit.
